Films directed by Chelsea Peretti, David Duchovny and Michael Shannon will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, organizers of the New York film festival announced on April 18, as well as documentaries about Dan Rather, Stan Lee and Gloria Gaynor.

Some 109 feature films, including 93 world premieres, will be screened at the 22nd Tribeca Film Festival. The festival runs June 7-18. Many of these include movies directed by notable actors. Peretti, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, will premiere First Time Female Director, in which she stars alongside Amy Poehler. Duchovny will debut his Bucky F—-ing Dent. Shannon will screen his Eric LaRue, starring Judy Greer and Alexander Skarsgård. Also playing at Tribeca are John Slattery's Maggie Moore(s) and co-directors Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater's Downtown Owl, a Chuck Klosterman adaptation.

Several more actors-turned-directors will also make a stop at Tribeca after debuting their films earlier. Randall Park will screen his Sundance entry Shortcomings, while Steve Buscemi will play his The Listener, starring Tessa Thompson.

Documentaries heading to the festival include Frank Marshall's Rather, about the former CBS newsman; Betsy Schechter's profile of the soul singer, Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive; and the Disney+ doc Stan Lee, which chronicles the late comic book giant.

For the third straight year, Tribeca, which for years took place in the spring, will feature Juneteenth commemorations. This year, that will include a celebration of hip-hop, timed to its 50th anniversary, and include the premiere of All Up in the Biz, a documentary about Biz Markie.
